it does get hard when you have to say no. And it can take a while for relatives and friends to accept the diet. We've been additive and preservative free for two years and my MIL has only just figured it out

Bump. Anyone got any tips?
My son has CMPI and I have just found out he is very sensitive to preservatives, additives, sunflower oil, sheep and goats milk and products, oats, buckwheat, coconuts, almonds, celery, vegemite, mayonnaise, chick peas, Lima beans and a few other things.
Im seriously at a loss as where to start reek

DD2 (8.5yrs) is CMPI and couldn't even tollerate things like biscuits with milk in them when she was little. She can now though. She can't have any dairy except for the occassional piece of cheese. She can't have a margarine/butter spread that contains dairy day to day without having a reaction. She has nuttelex but that has sunflower oil in it.
Where have you started?
Mayonnaise and vegemite would fall under additives. I just checked DH's mayonnaise and it has sunflower oil in it (not sure if they all do though) along with "colours & flavours" which can mean absolutely anything. There is msg/processed free glutimate in in vegemite. Ummm from memory it has yeast extract, malt extract and flavours. Yeast extract always contains msg and malt extract and flavours can both also contain msg.

The best thing is to buy additive alert ( book by Julie Eady ) so you can identify which products contain the nasty additives and preservatives but really just cut out all packet and jarred food and obviously dairy, what meals does your son like and try and duplicate them with healthy substitutes
a few starting tips;
Make your own sauces/spices/pizza bases and pasta and cakes/cookies
Buy organic breads
Use avocado instead of butter
If no allergy buy organic peanut butter
Cut out all processed meat ( no ham/bacon/deli meats etc )
Try quinoa or rice milks
Only drink water, or plain mineral water
Avoid any product with yeast (MSG)
Avoid all processed/ take a way food
Avoid dried fruit unless organic
Check all labels on everything you buy and go and check out your local organic shop

new mobile phone app to help avoid food additives
I’ve designed a mobile phone app called the Additive Detective to help people avoid food additives. You use the app to scan the barcode of any product, then it tells you if it contains any nasty additives and gives you a list of additive free alternatives. I have just launched the idea on Pozible, a crowdfunding website, to raise money to get the app built. It would be great if you could take a look at the embarrassing, but hopefully funny, video I created to explain how the app works and share it on your facebook wall. The more people who visit the idea at www.pozible.com/additives, the better.
